Under the Waves by synax444 Under the Waves by synax444
I decided to re-upload this piece because the previous version was a bit rushed.
Sorry if this appeared in your inbox more than once, dA has been giving me trouble :\

The colors are kind of mad, but whatever :P

Seasons Greetings from synax!

I wish the English language had adjectives that remotely expressed the majesty of this.
For lack of better words, this is incredible.

Thats some pretty intense art work.
Reminds me so much of the Northern Lights.
(which is my most favourite thing in the world)
Utterly stunning. I enjoy the colours of this picture.
What you do is pretty amazing, i can't even imagine
myself trying to create something like this.
Kuddos for you!

:D How did you get that "northern lights" look? A brush? I'm definately jealous of this picture (and like...ALL your others..haha) I wish I had that kind of talent!! :)

Here goes...

The aurora effect is actually pretty easy! You should have a look here [link] Its a set of "apophysis fractals" you can apply to your space art. There about 12 single flames in png image form.

Just open one up, paste it on a new layer over the scene you are working on, then set the layer to "screen" Then go to filter, and apply a motion blur to it, Set the "Distance" of the blur to anywhere from 350-700. Then go ahead reduce the brightness of the layer, and bring up the contras, until it starts to look like aurora. Then you can edit the color of it. THEN go to blur again and do a gaussian blur to the layer, this will make it look almost complete. Then you can make it swirly by going to "Filter" - "Distort" and then use a twist or wave effect, just mess around a bit and you're guaranteed to get some cool results, and then once THATS all done, paste another one of the flames over the one you just did, and do the exact same thing but with a different color and different shape, then once you get about 3 different colored flame layers on top of each other, it will look like the Northern Lights! :D

Damn, I hope you got all that... :confused: just let me know if you have trouble with any of the steps :D :D

That's beautiful! It makes me think very much of false-color imaging. It reminds me very much of an article I read a while back about how they found extra-terrestrial auroras on Jupiter specifically. Very, very cool piece.
